Wow - I have to say - we have several options here in Ark. for $25- $40 per cat. And our rescue group even does some special deals for cat colonies. Can't believe they don't have something better than $65 in the Virginia shore area.

Have you tried Spay Virginia - spay_neuter.html ?

The best I have found is the Virginia Beach SPCA Neuter Scooter that comes over to the Eastern Shore one day a month. The cost per cat is $65 and you have to schedule an appointment in advance. Not sure if i have to pay in advance too. That means I have to schedule a appointment then hope like heck I can trap one of them the day before. The local SPCA refused to get involved with feral kitties.
Thanks for your help

I looked out there, and in the section on Vet and Neuter, they have absolutely nothing but veterinarians listed in my area - and we (Arkansas) have a bunch of options for low cost spay/neuter options. THey don't have our cat rescue listed, so I submitted it.

I think I'd contact some local rescues to find out about s/n in Virginia - gotta be there somewhere....

Oops - not reading my email in sequence, sorry. Well, hope you find something a lot less than $100 per.

Does Spay USA have a branch in your state? In Georgia (Spay Georgia), one can purchase certificates which allow a huge discount at participating vets. They send a list of those vets when they send your certificates.

Thanks Gloria. So far it looks like the best I'm going to be able to do on the neutering is $100. There is a chance the Tidewater SPCA Neuter Scooter will come over to the Eastern Shore and I could save $25. I can afford to care for the 2 I have rescued. I'll have to work on colony one cat at a time as my budget allows. I am trying to recruit local sponsors to help with the cost. Local SPCA doesn't believe in TNR for ferals. I just don't want to have to tell the vet anything when I bring in a colony kitty.

That's wonderful that you're doing this. Would be nice if you could find a low-cost spay neuter clinic, or a free service, to help fund the neutering. RE your question about telling the vet, I don't know. If 2 are positive, still doesn't mean all the others are, although of course there's a chance. Any vet should be aware that if the kitty hasn't been tested, there's a potential for FELV or FIV. Neutering is the key to preventing the spread of this, as I understand. Least my take on it. Hope you find a good option for low cost or free neutering.

I had been feeding a group of dumpster 8 kittens and ended up rescuing 2, Sissy and Rocket, when they were about 12 weeks old. On their 1st vet visit both tested FeLV+. I will have both retested the end of April to see if they are still positive. I have them quarantined in my garage. They are eating Iams canned kitten food supplemented with a Super B Complex, Lactoferrin and DMG. So far they are responding well and seem very healthy. Both have had their kitten shots and been wormed.

If they stay positive I will either find a forever home for them or build an enclosure onto the garage for them. I have 2 indoor kitties and one has CRF so am concerned about bringing them into the house.

My questions concern the rest of the colony which includes at least 4 adults. I can not take all of them in. My plan had been to TNR the colony (trap/neuter/release). The vet is recommending euthanizing the entire colony if these 2 stay positive. I am not sure where I will be able to get then neutered if they are positive. And I can not trap them just to have them euthanized. That may be the best thing to do but I just can't do it. Is there any info on how to deal with a FeLV+ feral colony? Any advise on how to get them neutered? Am I obligated to tell the vet about the potential for FeLV when having them neutered?
